October 12, 2013 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! Are you ready to participate in the one running event that will allow you to experience the best of a city in less than 5K? People from Pittsburgh and around the country will be able to participate in events that showcase what makes the city great.
Bro Council, recently voted "Best Website" by readers of Pittsburgh Magazine, is excited to bring to life the city's very first Brocathalon. With this event, Bro Council will be incorporating challenges that highlight the city's best food and cherished icons. Plus, Steelers Super Bowl Champions Jeff Hartings and Justin Hartwig (and special guests) will emcee the event and greet runners at the finish line for a post race party featuring the best food and fun from the City of Champions.
You know what else? You're also helping out a great cause as a portion of the proceeds from the Brocathalon will be donated to locally founded charities, including the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation and Urban Impact Foundation.
